Tradition meets modernity

Bar Rioja is dedicated purely to the wonderful wines from the Rioja region of northern Spain, our aim being to showcase, in an intimate space, the exciting variety and quality of the wines and share our enthusiasm for them with you. We fell head over heels in love with this region and its wines since our first visits and have been back on countless occasions over many years. Bar Rioja hopes to continue the many magical memories made over the last thirteen years at Bar Pepito, whilst bringing something new to London.

Our menu features a fantastic selection of 43 wines of all different varieties spanning the region of Rioja. All wines will be available by the glass so you can enjoy multiple styles and to accompany them, Nacho del Campo, executive chef, is bringing to you the pincho culture from the most famous street in this wine region Calle Laurel.

    This was a Christmas present for my husband. Florian the Sommelier was very knowledgeable and gave great service. He understood what we liked and tailored our evening accordingly. The food was quick and delicious, really loved the soft blue cheese and the suckling pig. Fabulous evening.
